Tomorrow, Secret Someone will bid to cap an extraordinary season already with victory in the $400,000 Grade I First Lady Stakes at Keeneland.
Winner of the Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf Stakes and the Lady Canterbury Stakes already this season, Secret Someone faces another nine competitors in the First Lady. But she faces a tough task of it, as she’ll have to square up to champion Tepin. Robbie Albarado takes the mount on Secret Someone, who’s a 20-1 shot on the Morning Line.
The Stidham barn heads into the weekend on the back of a fine run of form, however. Today, at Hawthorne, Heart Stopper notched win number three this year for Michael Faber’s Dare to Dream Stable, while Aphrodite’s Quest broke her maiden under a nicely judged JulioFelix ride for owners Pin Oak Stud.
